Jesse from KinderStampO asked each of us to make a handmade ornament for our tree and to make one to give away. If you came from the talented Nicole of Candian NickelScrapin' Blog then you are heading in the right direction and if you would like to see what beautiful ornaments were designed for the hop I would love for you to go to KinderStampO Blog to start the hop.
I started my ornament by purchasing a premade paper mache ornaments from Hobby Lobby and painted them red.
I then took two pieces of 1 1/2" x 12 Autentique paper, glued the ends together and accordion fold them together. See the Make It Christmas music box. I placed it in the center of the ornament by drawing a circle in the middle of the ornament just big enough to hold the music box, I then cut the circle out and placed the music box inside the paper mache' ornament. I then took my accordian folded strip and placed it around the music box with two way tape.
I added two scalloped circles and a button to the center of the circles. Make sure your ornament is still playing music before you place the circles on it. Place your glue to the outside rim of the circles to assure they will continue to play. I hope you try adding a bit of music to your ornaments and continue on the hop by going to Creatively Counting My Blessings with Kristina and of course I would love for you to follow my blog and leave a comment if you wish. Have a blessed holiday season as you are decorating your home and tree. Hugs Pammejo
